President Barack Obama to Make Historic Speech to America’s Students tomorrow

 The controversy surrounding this speech is, in my opinion, without merit. How many other presidents have addressed the nation’s students? Why is it suddenly a bad thing because he did?

I went off on this subject (I do regret getting so irritated that I was starting to sound like a wackaloon myself) a few days ago because I was fed up with the lies that were being told about Obama being like Hitler, or wanting to get back at the Whites for their use of slavery earlier in this nation’s history.

If you’ve listened to what the opposition (that’s anyone who thinks anything Obama does is wrong) you’ve no doubt heard some outrageous accusations. What’s behind this movement?

Here’s what I know. CNN has reported that Lyndon LaRouche has been organizing the so-called “Tea-Baggers” to disrupt any town hall meetings on health care, and to boycott this speech today. That’s a fact.

LaRouche, a nutcase himself, is finding like-minded people and conducting a witch hunt (think the “Birthers) who are afraid of a black men! That’s right. If you don’t think that racism plays a major part in the attacks on Obama I invite you to go to numerous right-wing blogs and find out what they’re saying.

I know what I’ve seen and read, and I defy anyone to deny that. When he is compared to a monkey you have to know where that’s coming from.

From  - The U.S. Department of Education:

“During a special address on Tuesday, the president will speak directly to the nation's children and youth about persisting and succeeding in school. The president will challenge students to work hard, set educational goals, and take responsibility for their learning.

The U.S. Department of Education invites students of all ages, teachers, and administrators to participate in this historic moment by watching the president deliver the address, which will be broadcast live on the White House Web site ( and on C-SPAN. We also encourage educators to use this moment to help students get focused and inspired to begin the new academic year. The Department of Education offers educators a menu of classroom activities—created by its teachers-in-residence, the Teaching Ambassador Fellows—to help engage students in the address and stimulate classroom discussions about the importance of education.

To learn more, please see the following:

To further encourage student engagement, the U.S. Department of Education is launching the "I Am What I Learn" video contest. On September 8, we will invite students to respond to the president's challenge by creating videos, up to two minutes in length, describing the steps they will take to improve their education and the role education will play in fulfilling their dreams.

Why is it that everything Obama does is "Historic" ?

You got me.

Why is anything a president does historic?

Don't blame LaRouche for exposing a death panel policy. Look at the British NHS and NICE, the Obama model. 1/6 of people in the UK get "Deep Sedation", that means drugs like morphine, but no food and water. They die like that in 3 days. For real, do a google on it.

Say what Howie G?

Are you speaking "in tongues" or something? I got lost when it went from LaRouche to "Deep Sedation.!"

Howie G said...

In the bill of Obama and Sen Max Baucus there is a Medicare Commission put in to determine what diagnosis get what health care. If you have exhausted the menu of treatment and don't get better you are killed, like in Great Britain, now. You are sent to a hospice to clear a hospital bed, and then given a "treatment" of morphine, and other heavy sedatives, but no FOOD, no Water. You die in 3 days. That is how they save money "in the last year of life." That is pretty clear.
Read "Tony Blair Made Killing the Elderly enforceable,

Oh! Do you mean those "Death Panel's" that I've been hearing about?

Please get real.

That whole argueement by Sen. Grassley has been debunked to the point that the senate told CNN the other day he heard the rumor from (now get this) Sarah Palin!

Wow! Now there's an authority. Someone who couldn't even finish her term as the governor of Alaska.

Howie G said...

It's just like the UK. They want to create the laws and the pressure to make the elderly and feeble die fast and early. Anyone who complains a bit about their relative is simply called mad. But the British doctors are saying otherwise, see

btw the so-called Liverpool Care Pathway is being used to some extent in 18 countries. 16.5-percent of deaths in the UK occur this way. Now do you know what a Medicare Commission, and Medicare/Medicaid huge cuts really mean?

After all, why should Britons complain as they are killed? Don't they all have "insurance" in the form of the Orwellian NHS and the NICE (,National (socialist) Institute for Clinical Excellence.
